Here’s some good news! BriarPatch Co-op Market seeks to add 37 parking spaces and redesign the existing parking lot and circulation pattern to accommodate 170 total parking spaces at 290 Sierra College Drive, according to the latest Grass Valley Development Review Committee.
The committee will review the application at its meeting on Tuesday, January 26 at 9 a.m. at City Hall.
Now celebrating its 40th year, BriarPatch Co-op Community Market recently closed escrow and purchased the property it occupies at 290 Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley.
“Owning the property puts BriarPatch in a stronger, more stable financial position for the long run,” said general manager Chris Maher. “Ownership helps justify the investments we’re considering for expanding the store and parking lot,” he said. “As a cooperative business with over 12,000 owner households, ownership of our store is particularly meaningful — and a fantastic way to celebrate our 40th anniversary.”
